Loyal reader Nichole B. offers a recent example of the reductio ad Hitlerum:
“Obama’s sudden plan to pack 80,000 followers into a Denver sports stadium for his acceptance of the Democratic nomination instantly reminded of Hitler’s Nuremberg and Berlin rallies, moves the Nazis made as much to intimidate as acclaim.”
But you know who else wrote breathless editorials devoid of paragraph breaks in marginalized publications?
Wait for it…
Hitler, that’s who.
